New #'s are all good, but we need reasons... will try to math-shoot anything we come up with. Intergers are recommended. 8 works as the single-digit, but we could use something grand and mathematical as well...
Ok. (In direct contradiction of what I wrote above) let me mention the following: October 10th, 2010 will be Universal Spaghettification Day. How do I know this? Easy. :compute:
* October is the 10th month.
* the two-digit year is '10.
* so we have a date of 10-10-10.
* now we *waves hands* reinterpret this as the binary number 101010
* converting (101010)b to decimal gives (you guessed it): 42.
Oh, there's an idea--we could use 42, but represent it in hexadecimal instead: 2A.
Or, dropping 42 and just going for longer magic numbers, we could go with the "magical" hexadecimal number: DEAD BEEF. :compute: I like that one.
Or we could go for "magic numbers" that equate to alphabetical letters in ASCII. :compute: Yeah, we've got options.
